Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the HTC Touch DIamond2. It’s no secret the that HTC Touch Diamond from last year was one of HTC’s best selling phones of all times. It was picked up by more than a few a dozen cell providers across the globe, making it one of the most recognized WM phones on the market.
